Tomorrow night at Abrons Arts Center in New York, AUM Fidelity will celebrate three notable events on one stage: the release of alto saxophonist Darius Jones‘ debut recording as a bandleader, eminent saxophonist David S. Ware‘s triumphant return to performing after a highly publicized kidney transplant in May, and the first performance of bassist William Parker‘s Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra in more than four years.
Jones, the label’s most recent signing, will be performing in support of his October 13th release, Man’ish Boy (A Raw & Beautiful Thing) (AUM057). Ware, who unveiled his latest all-star quartet on January’s Shakti (AUM052), before being temporarily sidelined by an urgent and successful search for a kidney donor, will mark his 50th anniversary playing saxophone with a special solo performance. Parker’s Little Huey Creative Music Orchestra, last heard in New York at Vision Festival X in 2005, will present the world premiere of a new composition entitled, “Subsequent Illumination Inscriptions/Light Cottage”, dedicated to George Russell.
Doors open at 7:30 and the music begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are still available in advance and at the door (as space allows).
